What our members say

"The Business Network is one of the best networking events in the East Midlands, it is extremely well organised with a great turnout of decision makers, a formal monthly event but within a relaxed atmosphere.If you are looking to grow your business and your contacts, I strongly advise you to come along and experience The Business Network"

"Joining the Business Network South Herts has been a revelation to me as my previous experiences of other Networking Groups was a real turn off.The Business Network format has a working lunch feel to it that allows even the least experienced networker to shine ... and enjoy"

Brian Light, Pharoscoach

South Herts Business Network Member

"I’ve come across plenty of business networks in my years running professional football clubs and in consultancy; most are good, but this one is exceptional. The level of professional organisation and engagement of The Business Network makes me want to contribute my own experience and contacts. In turn, I expect to learn what's going on in the region and pick up new ways of doing things - supporting each other in this way benefits everyone."

Peterborough Business Network Member

"As a Humber based business it’s important for Delaney Marling Partnership Ltd to network with likeminded business people to extend our network and build up our brand awareness. With this in Mind we joined the South Humber Business Network in 2010 (I think) and gave it 12 months to see if it was for us. We have been members ever since. The group has allowed us to fulfil our initial goal as our network has grown and people have started to recognise our brand. More importantly the we have now picked up new suppliers and clients who we use and rely on and pass their details on to others in our network as trusted connections. The meetings are a place where we can network in a comfortable business like environment with great business people from a diverse range of local/national business’s."

"After attending many networking events (most of which were mediocre at best), I went to Pete's network event and loved the atmosphere, people and professionalism. Pete is a fantastic host, and makes sure the attendees have a good time as well as being focused on business. I always look forward to going, and I'd have no hesitation in recommending the event (and Pete!)."
